Resolute in teaching Biblical principles that sustain liberty
is one of the best tools teachers and parents can use to get to the “soil” of
the heart in order to plant the seeds of Godly character. Noah Webster,
speaking of the importance of the heart as the seat of character, called it
“the seat of the affections and passions—love, joy, grief, enmity, courage,
pleasure, etc.” Literature deals with ideals, principles and purposes,
making it the perfect teaching instrument.
Family Program for Reading Aloud
by Rosalie J. Slater is an in-depth resource for introducing and maintaining a
reading aloud literature program for your family.
Bundled with this offer is Joel, A Boy of Galilee, by
Annie Fellows Johnson. It is an excellent companion to this Biblical
method of reading aloud at home. This is the story of an ordinary boy
living among shepherds and fishermen and touches on every point of the Gospel
narrative. It presents to children an accurate picture of the times of
Christ—the customs, temple service and numerous holidays and observances. Joel
becomes a witness to the miracles, the death and resurrection of the Nazarene.
